Oliver Texting

I made this birthday card for one of my great nephews.  I always struggle making cards for teenage boys, but these LOTV 'Oliver' digi stamps are perfect!  I'm entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Stamp: Lili of the Valley 'Oliver Texting' digi, Hobby Art 'General Greetings'
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Dark Brown matt, white silk
Paper: Papermania 'Capsule Elements Wood', Hot off the Press 'Floral Ultimate Pack'

I trimmed the wood effect paper, layered it onto brown card and attached it to the card blank, adding a strip of spotty paper across the middle.  I resized the digi stamp and printed it onto white silk card before colouring it with Promarkers.  The panel was trimmed and the sentiment stamped on the left side using my MISTI.  This was then layered onto brown card and attached to the left side of the card.

Terrific contemporary teen masculine card! Love see this. I only have 2 nephews for my side of the family and they are 25 and 13. I'm going to have to remember this image to use for one of them next time. Thanks for sharing at PPCC blog! Becca=DT

You picked the perfect image for a teenage young fella, as they always have the phone in their hands. Love the layout, and the border is a great DP for this design. TFS & Hugs
